#7 Scruffy Old Campsie Guesthouse
This listing is just for one bedroom.
Room 7 is an odd shaped room that sleeps up to two people. It also has a large private storage space under the stairs (It has it's own "Harry Potter room"). This room is ideal if travelling with lots of luggage or surfboards, bikes etc. Apart from the storage space the room is medium sized and can suit a single or two friends. There is only a small window and it cannot be opened. Some guests love this about the room, and some really dislike not having good airflow, so please consider your preferences. All other rooms have large windows that can be opened.
Campsie Guesthouse is very old so be prepared for a scruffy paint job, and bathrooms that certainly aren't modern! Although the house is scruffy and falling down in parts it does meet all standards of safety — there is an up to date fire panel and alarm system, proper closing fire doors on each room, and each room locks for privacy. The house is not overcrowded and much more peaceful than your usual hostel. It's more like one big share home.
There are seven separate bedrooms with a very flexible set up. The biggest room (Room 2) will fit a family or group of friends, the smallest (Room 5) is just big enough for bed and desk.
It's hostel standard and at most there can be 15 people on that floor of the building sharing three bathrooms, a common room, and a kitchen. Foxtel/Cable TV is in the lounge room, and we also provide a house cleaner once a week along with fresh hotel quality linen for your rooms. Wifi is free. We don't however have any air conditioning – just fans.
We have a huge verandah and an outdoor courtyard too with BBQ and smoking areas so there is quite a lot of space and it's a relaxed, cheap and cheerful place to stay. There is an outside laundry with coin operated washing machines and dryers.
I do not live on site, but my father does and he acts as the caretaker – if you buy him a beer he'll be happy to tell you everything about our local area. The house is set up for independent travelers. We don't have a reception desk and you will be left on your own to explore the city. Of course many people stay on long term and end up making good friends in the house. If you haven't shared a house before, or lived out of home or travelled much then you may not enjoy this property. If you're happy to meet new people then you may love it – some of our guests stay as long as 10 months!
Campsie itself is not a tourist area. It's a mostly Asian area with a tonne of great local shops, supermarkets, a shopping mall, cafes and restaurants. All only a five min walk away. It's cheaper to stay where the locals live and eat than in the city or at the beaches!
From here it will take you 20-30 mins on a train into the city centre and about 40mins-1 hour to get to the beaches. You can catch the Burwood 400 bus from the Airport directly to our house making it very cheap.
I can also provide babysitting for families along with any needed baby equipment free of charge — car seats, prams, cots, high chairs etc.
